On the cam, if you don't want to spend the money, you can use an aftermarket adjustable timing chain set designed for the 3.8 buick. (which I would use regardless over the factory timing set anyway, much more robust). Advancing the cam 3 degrees with the adjustable timing chain set will give you basically the same cam profile as a 4.6 cam or an aftermarket cam.

Winn the front cover you are referring to is found on the 1994-1995 Discovery (3.9) and the 1995 Range Rover Classic (3.9 and 4.2) were serpentine belt drive and had distributor ignition. Bill, that's why I mentioned the parts trucks I have. I have 4 complete 3.9 serpentine belt 14CUX engines in stock and I would LOVE to get rid of some of this stuff...

I like the rollmaster CS7000 timing chain but it requires a little clearance to work.

Great link - lots of good clear pics of the Rover V8 internals including the crucifix seals and packing the oil pump with vasoline that has been mentioned on here a lot. Unreal how clean everything was.

That Rollmaster timing chain does look nice.
